Affordable Face Primer - Monistat Chafing Gel

Tomorrow, I need a tube of Monistat Chafing Gel! Gosh, how am I going to keep a straight face when I purchase this yeast infection treatment?  LOL! ... but what joy to discover that Monistat Chafing Gel, "coochie cream" (as one Youtuber called it) can be substituted for Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer.

My tube of MAC primer finished over the holiday season. I need primer, certainly before March. Before MAC, I used Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer and was considering buying it once again. I liked its silky and velvety feel when applied to my skin.

Yet, I've been dilly dallying. I hate the price tags of MAC and Smashbox primers. I even considered e.l.f Studio Mineral Face Primer which costs $6. Affordable yep, but $6.95 shipping costs, I might as well buy the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer but now ....

A-ha, coochie cream, it's on!  LOL!

And in case, you want to stick to the usual stuff ...

UPDATE: Monistat Primed Face ... I like!


  1. I am definitely going to put this to the test. AWESOME !

  2. I have been using this for over 2 years, works really well!

  3. I have been using this for years as a primer. Good affordable alternative. Also I wouldn't catergorize it as "coochie cream". It's used to help avoid chafing in the nether area (as well as underarm etc) and is used externally only.

  4. I own a tube of this myself. I actually started buying it about two years ago while I was gearing up for Trinidad's Carnival. I still alternate between the Monistat and Make Up Forever's All Matt for my primer but you can't beat Monistat's price!
